Glamour model Josie Cunningham has cancelled plans to sell tickets to her baby’s birth.
Josie, who first came to public attention when she had a breast augmentation on the NHS in 2009, decided to cancel the tickets after discovering she was expecting a girl.
The 24-year-old caused outrage when she turned to smoking and drinking alcohol because she thought her unborn baby was a boy. It has been reported that she plans to change her lifestyle now she knows her baby is a girl.
Due to give birth in October, Josie told the Mirror on Sunday: “I have been such a silly girl and have lots of regrets. I can see that now I know I am going to have a daughter.
“I’ve really started looking after myself. I have never purposely put my child at any risk, but when I was originally told I was having a boy I just lost all willpower to avoid the cravings. Now all that’s changed. I’m ashamed of the way I have portrayed myself. I’ve now cut down to just one or two fags a day. I’m about to get hypnotherapy to stop completely”.
“My two little boys will grow up, get married and start their own little family – but a daughter usually stays close to their mum for life” continued Josie.
Leeds native Josie previously told Closer magazine that she was “selling two tickets at £5,000 each and two at £10,000 which are VIP. All tickets will include travel and accommodation and the pricier ones will entitle the ticket holder to film the birth and take photos”.
